#722 Loving and Leaving Yellowstone

"It is our Nation's greatest wonder and through some miracle of selflessness in a country too often built on greed, the Yellowstone Park will be preserved for generations to come." - Letters from Yellowstone, Diane Smith

When we arrived at our Nation's greatest wonder at the beginning of March, we drove through the Roosevelt Arch and waved happily at the North Entrance Webcam.  

Then we met some of the Yellowstone park staff who gave us all we needed to succeed.  First, yak trax to keep us safe...

Then, a gate pass for our month-long entry into Yellowstone's Wonderland, ID cards for entry to the Heritage and Research Center, and a Yellowstone Research Library card for getting access to all things Yellowstone...

and finally, a place to call home.

Now, at the end of March, our time at Yellowstone is coming to an end all too soon.  We've enjoyed all of our days, all of the people, and all of the northern section of the park. We are fortunate to have this opportunity to contribute our time and skills in this beautiful place and we are hoping the park will be preserved for generations to come.

If you're interested in volunteering, be sure to check out, America's Natural and Cultural Resources Volunteer Portal, for a list of opportunities.

Yours in knowing we'll be back,
Mary Jo
